Veet's 'Don't Risk Dudeness' Ads Border On Homo- And Transphobic: VIDEOS

Veet_strips_1

Veet is advertising its hair-removal products with ads that implying that women turn into dudes if they go even one day without shaving their legs and armpits. The ads go a step further by suggesting that men are rightfully repulsed by such women, depicting them as a bearded, bearish dude with a lady's voice.

The not-so-subtle subtext is that if you don't conform to men's standards of beauty, you're a unattractive dude worthy of rejection from your boyfriend, taxi drivers, EMTs, manicurists, Veet and viewers at large. Furthermore, being attracted to any person with body hair makes you gay or a lover of mannish women.

Are you into beards? Do guys with facial hair get you going? Then you're in luck, because now you can even type to your bearded-heart's content with a new font based entirely on one man's mustachioed look.

Gizmodo reports:

The brainchild of New York City-based designer Michael Allen, the Alphabeard has seen him carefully sculpt every character from his own facial hair. Bold and medium versions of the font were created at different stages of growth. Admittedly, not all the characters are super clear but, c'mon, it was carved out of hair.

Bear Spoof Of GoDaddy's Bodybuilder Ad: VIDEO

BearDance parody

Last week web host provider GoDaddy deviated a bit from their normal marketing method of using scantily-clad women to sell their hosting services with a commercial featuring scantily-clad male bodybuilders sprinting to the tanning salon.
